IPMN welcomes
Susan Abulhawa and Sa'ed Adel Atshan
to the 222nd General Assembly
of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)

Susan Abulhawa

Best-selling novelist, Susan Abulhawa, will give the keynote address at the IPMN General Assembly luncheon on Monday, June 20th. The luncheon will take place at the Doubletree Hotel in Portland, Oregon at 11:30 a.m. (Rev. Mitri Raheb is unfortunately unable to speak at this luncheon as originally scheduled.)

abulhawaBorn to Palestinian refugees of the 1967 war, Ms. Abulhawa is the author of numerous books, including the critically acclaimed novels, Mornings in Jenin and The Blue Between Sky and Water, and is a regular contributor to Al Jazeera, the Chicago Tribune, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Christian Science Monitor, among other publications. Ms. Abulhawa is also the founder of Playgrounds for Palestine, an organization that builds playgrounds in Palestine and Palestinian refugee camps.

Sa’ed Adel Atshan

Also joining us in Portland is Sa’ed Adel Atshan. Dr. Atshan will be the keynote speaker at the National Middle Eastern Caucus banquet on Tuesday, June 21st at 6:00 p.m. The banquet will be held in the Westminster Presbyterian Church. The title of Dr. Atshan’s address is “Loving Justice: Reflections from a Gay Palestinian Quaker.”

Dr. Atshan is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies at Swarthmore College. He holds a PhD (2013) and an MA (2010) in Anthropology and Middle Eastern Studies from Harvard University. Dr. Atshan has conducted research on nonviolent Israeli and Palestinian social movements, countering old characterizations of nonviolence as foreign to the region. Instead he discovers and reveals “co-resistance” or coalition and joint struggles for social justice between Israeli and Palestinian activists. In addition to his academic career, he has worked for the American Civil Liberties Union, the UN High Commission on Refugees, Human Rights Watch, Seeds of Peace, the Palestinian Negotiations Affairs Department, and the Government of Dubai. Dr. Atshan is also a member of Al-Qaws, an organization promoting LGBTQ Palestinian rights.
